“Enjoyed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This hotel is centrally located, between the busy main drag and redlight area and the 9 streets shopping district. Located on one of the canals (what isn't in Amsterdam) it's a simple walk in pretty much any direction. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Bar in the evening is lovely, and the staff very attentive. The restaurant had fabulaous food, all reasonably priced. Breakfast in the restaurant was a bit of a shambles though. We were a party of 6, and the "sit where you like" policy doesn't help when singles or couples take up large tables, so best reserve a spot. Would happily stay here again.

Stayed for two nights for a weekend break. Location is great nearby and quite central. Lovely bar to have a drink in, there was a good spread for breakfast too. Room was spacious and clean. Overall had no complaints but for the price I am sure there are better hotels in Amsterdam !!

Stayed August 2014, traveled as a couple

The hotel was very clean. We were travelling as a group and were early for checkin but they had rooms for the group witching 15 minutes. They gave us info about canal rides and attractions nearby. It is a wonderful, friendly place to stay.

We recently stayed at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Amsterdam. It was set up for us using the concierge service with our Sapphire Card. I did not know anything about this hotel but it was rated a 5 star hotel.

The main lobby was ok not exceptional as I was expecting for a 5 star hotel. They were kind enough to let us keep our luggage there while we were on our boat trip. The staff was helpful and even let us into our room a little bit early.

As soon as we walked into our room I was shocked. I could not believe this was a 5 star hotel. I would give it a 2.5 star. The first indication was the dirty and crooked carpet in the elevator.

I have photos that show cracked bathroom tile, miss matching tile, something ripped off the bathroom wall and not repaired, chipped grout in the doorway and bathtub. Chipped and dinged up bar and safe. I did not check the bed but I had a bunch of bites on my arm each morning. Just a heads up, CHECK THE BED!

The room was maybe 8x10'. In it they had too much furniture. Queen size bed, two end tables, chair and table, dresser, desk, bar/safe, lights and baskets. I felt really cramped.

On the good side they had a great breakfast which was included in the price. And the staff was kind and helpful. They had free wifi too. The location is good too.

Room Tip: We had a "Deluxe" room. A euphemism for low budget no frills I guess.

Green Features: They had a sign up about the towels and my husband and I did hang up our towels each night but they still changed them. What was the point?

This is a really nice hotel and in a perfect location - very central so the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance (as is the Central Station which gives you cheap and easy transfers to and from the airport), but it's in a quiet side street so there are no problems with noise. The rooms are comfortable with individually controlled air con and the hotel has free wi-fi which you can use throughout your stay. We had interconnecting rooms which worked very well for us travelling as a family of 4.
Buffet breakfast was good with an extensive choice of hot and cold food, the staff were all pleasant and attentive (including Luis the concierge who was a great help with information, restaurant bookings etc.) and the hotel has a really nice bar to relax in after a hard day's sightseeing.
All in all, thoroughly recommended!

Upon checking in to the Radisson I must say that my reaction was mixed . Although quaint, I was expecting significantly more luxury. Little did I know that this would be made up for in the overall guest expirience! The staff were as warm as ever, the food fantastic and the location superb. There isn't much more to it, it is simply a spectacular expirience. Upon leaving, I couldn't have been any sadder. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to returning next summer for another stay at the Radisson!
